No matter what your level of hearing is you can pick up a Rugby ball and have some fun.

The Australian Deaf Rugby team was founded in Sydney more than 15 years ago and is made up of players who have a hearing loss of at least 50 decibels in one ear or both.

Rugby Australia is a proud supporter of the team whose motto is ‘’inclusiveness’’ and prove that no matter what your level of hearing is you can pick up a Rugby ball and have some fun.

In April 2018 Australia hosted the World Deaf Rugby 7s tournament which attracted more than 180 athletes from all corners of the world including England, Ghana, Japan and Wales.

It was also the first International Deaf Women’s tournament ever staged with three female teams battling it out in Sydney. The Australian Deaf Rugby team participates in annual tournaments across the world with the next stop being in Tonga in July 2019.
